This is the video we mentioned in the FB live feed. Lady was by herself and decided she wanted to take on the bush. Or maybe it started first, but either way, she had her own little party while doing so. The whole episode lasted about 10-15 minutes, with her taking breaks in between seemingly waiting to see if there was any sort of retaliation. The drive on my phone is full, so I was only able to record under a minute.
At the beginning of the video you can hear her make a noise, it’s the same noise Maia makes when she plays. She also goes up an octave, closer to what we refer to as ‘whale song’, but we didn’t get that on video. And she ended one of her other noises in a sort of raspberry. We’ve definitely got a cute one on our hands. Towards the end of the video you will hear her do some trunk pops as well.
She made sure to use all of herself during the ‘brawl’. She swatted with her tail, swung her front legs, backed over, kicked her back legs at it, hit it. She trumpeted loudly at it a few times as well, which was what caught Maia’s attention. It was really nice to see that degree of playful side from her after just one day at the sanctuary.
